Oasis May Reform! (In Five Years)
It seems that Hollywood is chock-full of make-up/break-up stories, and a new one seems to pop up everyday. Are John Mayer and Jennifer Anniston makin’ out or throwing plates at one another? Are Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler bumpin’ uglies or gettin’ ugly? Which blonde bombshell is Hugh Hefner taking to bed these days?
While all of those couples are fine and dandy, one couple cannot seem to stay together without wanting to tear each other apart – the Gallager brothers of [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]Oasis[/lastfm]. They haven’t made beautiful music together in quite a while, but sources say they may be getting back together! Mazol Tov!
Alan Mcgee first signed Oasis to a label back in 1993. Only a year later, they released Definitely Maybe. After it’s release they hit the big time. While the album went platinum, the brothers struck gold in the tabloids.
Sibling rivalry was never so jocular and disastrous at the same time. The notorious feud of one-upmanship between the brothers lead to some of the greatest frenetic music heard with bouts of onstage debauchery. Sounds like a winning formula, right?
It wasn’t too long before the band’s dynamic became a parody of itself. We knew if we saw Oasis live, they would strike one chord and start slapping one another. It was pathetic, hectic, and mesmerizing all at once.
Last year, Noel Gallager announced his departure from the band to concentrate on his solo work. While his withdrawal caused a rift in the band (big surprise there), critics and fans alike remain optimistic. Neither Noel Gallager or Liam Gallager seem to show any inclination to a demise in their creative music exploration.
Allan Mcgee seems confident in the fact that the hostility will subside and the siblings will go back to doing what they do best – fighting contention amid flurries of electronic surges of harmony. After all, a balance of competition and momentum seems to be the best formula for songwriting partners. Just look at Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
